Peru's Garcia, Former President And Political Chameleon, Kills Himself to Avoid Arrest

According to Reuters, the former president of Peru Alan Garcia, fatally shot himself in the head on Wednesday at his home in Lima as police waited in another room to arrest him in the Odebrecht case.

Garcia had denied the corruption allegations that had long dogged him until the end, saying he was victim of political persecution.

Garcia was one of nine people whom a judge had ordered to be arrested in connection with the bribery investigation into Odebrecht on Wednesday.
